On a chilly afternoon, a small group of hard core”Drag Story” DEFENDERS gathered in front of the library to make noise and block the entrance.
What books are read is never revealed, and by not letting the Guardians of Divinity enter the library ( even after the story hour) they must be HIDING something. Popular books: This Book is Gay; Gender Queer; Beyond Magenta; Jacobs New Dress; Drag Dictionary and OUT!(How to be your Authentic Self).
These books are found in the libraries and in our schools, clearly setting the stage for easy grooming.
Meanwhile, the so called ‘DEFENDERS” bang on anything metal, slap rattles and shake tambourines, noise pollution for alll who pass by while “giving the bird” to the Guardians of Divinity…. for the kids to see and hear.
Across 53rd, the Guardians of Divinitydefend the innocence of the children with signs like “Let the Kids be Kids” and “Save the Children” from groomers.
And they welcomed explaining the issues to passersby. Many stopped to chat.
Except for one F-You guy who angrily shouted as he passed by the Guardians.
.As for the police, seemed like too many for the noisy protestors. They were tasked with standing on both sides of the street AND only BLOCKED the Guardians of Divinity from entering the library. (Noisy Lefties were welcomed)
Flicker slide show Part 1 – A look at both sides of the protest. A small group of pro “drag story hour” lefties gathered in front of the library, challenged by the Guardians of Divinity with great signs and chants
Flicker slide show Part 2- More of both sides, the police and the fake Fox reporter.
a few short videos next:
Part 1 (2:32) Had a lot of short clips of both sides. The usual profanity came from the Leftists (plus they love to flip off everyone)And their mascot, “CrackHead Barney”. The children’s drag show “defenders” LOVE her. “Barney” is loud and obscene. Sometimes half-naked (sometimes … her breasts are exposed) as she performs in a smelly, obscene costume. Ending with a few nannies and their very young charges leaving the Drag Story hour.
Part 2 – Gay Activist, Jay Walker did his usual blah-blah-blah. And the Guardians Mascot Brad was front and center on the metal barricade.
.Part 3 – The Guardians of Divinity continued to protest the grooming of children whiles fake reporter, Walter Masterson –a wanna-be actor who crashes protests , today pretended to be a FOX reporter. It seemed to fool the leftards, but he fooled no one on the Guardians side.
.Last video is Talia Ben Ora, Last video is Talia Ben Ora, a lefty ‘journalist’ hanger-on ,who promotes the library drag story hours while working the police with supposed intel. She also promotes herself on patreon as a ‘journo” who needs MONEY.
Oddly , the police seem to have willingly been snookered by her. (she has said as much on Twitter)
Talia schmoozes the lead cops. Hangs wherever she chooses. And proudly encourages the censorship of those she label Right Wing Fascists. A VERY obnoxious woman who amused while performing for the camera.
.Update: Happy to have observed , starting with the BLM/Jordan Neeley riots, that Talia’s “Junior G-Man” badge seems to have expired.
The NYPD is no longer welcoming her ‘guidance” ((amusing exchange with police/she’s NOT happy)
With this latest leftist rabble assaulting the police and reporters, blocking streets and public transportation, The police might become impatient with the ACAB (all cops are bastards) / DEFUND the Police insurgents. It was time…
.Guess we found out. Lots of arrests on May 9th
Yesterday in Lower Manhattan, During a vigil for #JordanNeely , NYPD officers asked protesters if they had a sound permit and if they didn't they can't use the mic . Officers them moved in and made arrests after the mic was used again. For licensing email… pic.twitter.com/gOh8ZEV71O

During the presser, those progressive politicos who tried to ignore the presser: Lincoln Restler, Tiffany Caban and Shekar Krishnan, were outed and heckled are they passed by.
While Councilman Erik Bottcher and NY 1’s Errol Louis set a bad example for these journalism students from @newmarkjschool journalism.
Showing no interest in a presser on the steps of City Hall. Their backs to the crowd. the reporters. the speakers.
But, leaders of the leftist movement demanded loyalty and a pledge to a new statement of principles. (a “statement of principles”) calling for a reduction in “the size and scope” of the Police Department. That’s when the trouble erupted. The 35-member caucus was divided by the demand: 15 members quit the group rather than signing, with several saying that such a rigid approach, especially on policing, left progressives out of step with real-life concerns.” [https://www.nytimes.com/2023/02/17/nyregion/progressive-nyc.html]
Encouraging even more ludicrous progressive principles:
▪ “Full civil rights for all New Yorkers regardless of race, gender, ethnicity, national origin, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, or physical disability. This includes a commitment to the safety and well-being of LGBTQIA New Yorkers, but especially Black and brown trans-women, reproductive rights for women and other people who can become pregnant,full municipal privileges and responsibilities regardless of immigration status or criminal record.” [https://nycprogressives.com/statement-of-principles/]
[Excerpted] “We should be PRAISING our Law Enforcement. However (they) are being disrespected on a daily basis. We have a body of elected officials; they’re not public servants. They are socialist activists infiltrating our democrat party and bringing chaos in to our city. This is unacceptable. If anything, give our Law Enforcement a RAISE. Support our Law Enforcement. We all have to stand together and vote these people out. How dare you laugh and smile and smirk at us…it’s time for you to get out of office. We do NOT support SOCIALISM. I stand with Law Enforcement. Get RID of the Progressive Caucus. We’re not safe… but THEY got their security. Defund THEM and I will always Back The Blue.” (3:11)
Part 3- Madeline Brame, Chairwoman Victims Rights Reform Council. Mother of homicide victim , Army veteran Hason Correa. (8:53)
(Excerpted with short Nicole Palame intro)“The Progressive Caucus wasn’t in the courtroom. They didn’t support her.” Madeline Brame (begins) “You’re FIRED! Exactly what are we paying you for. We are taxed to the max to pay these salaries. … Not another dime of our tax dollar to the failed initiatives. They do everything but lift the black and brown community out of poverty. If Rikers is that bad, why do people keep committing crimes. Some would rather (be in Rikers) than be on the streets with no jobs…. NYC is out of control. People grandstanding , telling us what they think we want to hear. They get a little position and they turn their nose up in the air. They don’t even like black people. They’re black themselves and they don’t even like black people. They think they’re better. But election after election after election, for decades, we continue to go out and vote the same way. … (but) when they see life-long democrats beginning to walk away from the plantation of the democrat party and changing their political affiliation … If you don’t like the word Republican, become a Conservative. Most black and brown people were raised with conservative values. If you wanta eat, you work. You gotta go to school and bring that high school diploma. There was no layin’ around. After graduation you either work, you go to college or you go to the military. And there was no other alternative. Those are good, strong, American values. Conservative values. God. Number One. Family. Number Two. And Country. Number Three. Everybody can agree with that. Everybody has those same values. How we turned from it and let all this chaos and confusion happen around us, I have no idea. But, until we get back to the structure of the nuclear family, in my community, things will continue on a downward spiral. Repeal Bail Reform. … Send that garbage through a shredder and start over from the beginning and make some real investments in our communities. Billions of dollars. We don’t need more basketballs. We don’t need no more damn hula hoops. No more recreation centers. The newest appeasement is Roller Skates.We don’t need that. Fix the dilapidated housing. Get those mothers some parenting classes. Fix those failing schools. Give our boys some skills, some training. Instead of pickin’ up a gun, … let them put on a uniform. Let them … train to use it properly and get paid to shoot the bad guy. You wanta die. Die a Hero. And not a zero.”(8:53)
Part 4- Raul Rivera – TLC Driver Advocate, a native New Yorker. (2:00).
[Excerpted] “….we’re getting killed, we’re getting robbed, we’re getting shot …It is very important that we get these WOKE D.A.s out of office. We say “Hell No” to Alvin Bragg. We don’t give up. We don’t surrender. We don’t retreat. Today. Tomorrow. Forever.” (2:00).
Part 5 – Amy Tse, Community Activist from Queens (2:52)
[Excerpted] “Violence against our seniors; our mothers, fathers and children …. (dying because of) gang violence. It’s heart breaking. Shop owners, Asian Americans have been targeted for robberies and random acts of violence.(…)And if you think this doesn’t affect you, your community, think again…. It affects ALL our communities. Violent and REPEAT offenders affect ALL of us. We deserve safety, instead of being terrorized. Elected officials who signed a pledge to Defund the NYPD do not have our livelihoods, family’s safety or our best interests at heart. We MUST get rid of them. Every election day we can make a difference. VOTE THEM OUT. (2:52)
Part 6 – K-Born Rivers, Founder “I am My Community Inc” from the Bronx (1:52)
.[Excerpted] “I’m not a big major fan of the NYPD, but I am a big major fan of common sense…. You don’t defund the police and not add more security. …. We have ta get these people out. We have ta vote. Let’s hold special elections. Let’s get them outta here.” (1:52)
Part 7 – Tiffany Keriakos, small business owner from Bklyn,Manhattan (2:57)
(Short intro Nicole Palame) “Diversity. Dialogue. We don’t agree on everything, but we are willing to work together to get things done in this city and make this city livable for everybody.” (Excerpted) Tiffany Keriakos:“We all know small businesses are the beating heart of NYC. Yet the crime wave, especially retail theft, is leaving many businesses fighting for their lives. (she describes the thefts, break-ins and employee assaults at her decades old business) When criminals break in to our store, we’re left to foot the bill of the repairs, the merchandise, and we’re expected to get back -to-business “as usual”. (re insurance) … Everybody drops you when you have a robbery. ( ….) Only big names corporations will be left to monopolize our retail environment. Instead, we should be supporting small businesses that are the back-bone of our communities. (… ) Who is going to make these criminals stop. Otherwise we’re not going to have small businesses anymore and New York will never be the same.”(2:57)
Part 8 – Maria Danzilo- Exec. Dir.”One City Rising”. Former candidate NY State Senate (Manhattan Westside) (3:39)
[Excerpted] .”.. the way this “Regressive” Caucus is behaving…. we actually have SPIRALING crime due to years of very bad policies. We have Catch and Release Bail Reform; Decriminalizing EVERYTHING. Our District Attorney isn’t prosecuting crime. … This is a moment when we really shouldn’t be talking about Defunding the Police. In this environment… we have this completely OUT OF TOUCH group of electives trying to DEFUND the police… They don’t seem to care. They’re in another world; another reality. Instead of giving us public safety…they’re giving us : a PURITY Test. They want everybody in their caucus to agree to this radical and extreme purity test or they’re OUT. Thank you for that test. The people who are in that caucus and those who left, we know where you stand now: completely divorced from reality. They seek to divide. At war with our mayor. … We are not about abolishing police. … They just want money and power. ” (3:39)
Part 9 – Gene de Francis, veteran and community leader from the Bronx (4:11)
[Excerpted] “The Right was right. Republicans were right; still are right. Ever since COVID happened. The shutdowns. The mandates. The masks. The defunding the police. The pushing away of the police. But, we work well with Democrats, despite what you see on the media. We will not work with Socialists. And we don’t call them “Progressives”. … They are REgressive. … When you centralize power, that is not American; that is Socialism. This country is run by moderates. … Regressives try to label Republicans as extremists. … Capitalism is not an evil word. Educate your kids and don’t ever fight Free Speech. We need different opinions. … Keep these freedoms and pass it onto our next generation.”(4:11)
Part 10 -Nicole Palame – (4:48) During the final comments a couple of progressive council members tried to ignore the presser, but were called out with VOTE THEM OUT as they passed by. (Lincoln Restler (0:58), Shekar Krishnan (2:35)…”there’s another socialist” (while in the back ground also ignoring the presser, Councilman Erik Bottcher)
Part 10 -Nicole Palame – closing comments (4:48)
(Excerpted)”These majority of New Yorkers do not want to defund the police … they want good change. We demand to be safe. We (challenge) the city council: Join Our Caucus. The Caucus of Unity and Community. And then lets have a dialogue about how we make progress in this city once and for all. [she introduced those present who are running against the city council members and name those council members] [re those who left the Progressive Caucus she asked] “… these people left the caucus in the final hour. Did they leave it because they’re a little afraid they have a challenger? Or did they leave it because they realized they were in the wrong caucus. WE gotta call them out. We gotta tell them to debate. We wanta know the truth. We deserve to know the truth. … Any elected official who is advocating for the abolition or even defunding of the police is out of touch with reality. …. Pledge to serve your community and meet the needs of the community today and prevent crime from happening.”( 4:48)
+There were many fine, impassioned speakers. A genuinely diverse group.
However, the extent of the coverage from Errol Louis at NY1 was sadly lacking. ( Errol is standing in separate group lower right of photo)
“A fine day at City Hall. This “Enough is Enough” coalition includes several candidates for City Council. The group denounced the Defund movement and loudly booed some members of the Progressive Caucus as they walked in. ” [Errol Louis @errollouis]
+Two months later, the Democrat’s – again -ignored the victims of violent crime at a field hearing of the House Judiciary Committee. (photo HJ News.com))
The focus was meant to be on Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg’s “pro-crime, anti-victim” policies.
Madeline Brame, who chairs the nonprofit Victims Rights Reform Council, told committee members that Bragg’s mishandling of her son Hason Correa’s 2018 killing began a few months after the district attorney took office last year.
“DA Bragg has demonstrated over and over again that he has no regard or concern for human life or victims of crime,” Brame testified. [NY Daily News]
(very short clip from cops4freedom)
.As she spoke, Madeline Brame was disrespected, even sneered at by the Democrats. There was no apology for their lack of empathy. Trump was their focus, their boogey-man.
“When Alvin Bragg came into office, he was handed a strong, trial-ready murder case and gang assault case against all four of these individuals,” she said, before recounting how “the case immediately began to unravel.”
“He dismissed — completely dismissed — gang assault and murder indictments against two of the defendants clearly on video participating in the brutal, savage slaughter of my son,” Brame went on. “Hason was kicked, punched, stomped and stabbed nine times by four individuals whom he did not know, nor had he done them any harm.”
Four siblings — Christopher, James and Mary Saunders, and another brother, Travis Stewart — attacked the 35-year-old married father of three outside a Harlem apartment building.
James Saunders pled guilty to gang assault and second-degree murder and was sentenced to 20 years to life in prison, below the maximum of 25 years to life — along with Christopher Saunders who was also convicted of gang assault and sentenced to 20 years to life.
Travis Stewart also pled guilty to gang assault but was sentenced to just seven years in prison. Mary Saunders was released from prison last May on time served after having spent 14 months at Rikers Island.
“Travis will be out in the next 18 months,” Brame said. “Mary Saunders — this savage is currently walking the streets of Harlem like she didn’t just participate in the brutal slaughter of another human being — home with her family, home with her children.
“If that’s not a threat to public safety, I don’t know what is,” she added. “And as far as the Manhattan district attorney’s office, if he’s receiving one penny of federal dollars, you need to pull that funding until he starts doing his damn joband prosecuting crime.”
Audience members broke into applause several times during Brame’s testimony, prompting Jordan to remind spectators of the hearing’s rules of decorum. [NY POST]
+And when New York City’s Mayor Adams responded, he did so with shameful ignorance:
“Mayor Adams slammed Rep. Jim Jordan and other House Republicans on Monday morning for pulling a “political stunt” and “hypocrisy” for the hearing they held later in the day to examine the crime policies of Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg. [NY Daily News]
SOCIALISM is destroying America. The One Party Machine. BLUE States. BLUE Cities.
Can we turn the tide?
“Silent No More” We demand to be safe. Enough is Enough!
Or, is it too late to rout the enemy?

March 25, 2023. 11 AM The International Gift of Life Walk in Lower Manhattan.
The Gift Of Life Walk gathered a block away from Foley Square because SPIDERMAN was filming on the steps of the Court House.
In a rain that often got heavier, the Pro Life Rally and the very NOISY pro abortion LGBTQ Leftists converged, separated by the NYPD (or so they tried).
Part 1 Flickr Slide show is mainly of the Gift of Life participants
At the relocated Gift Of Life Walk Rally, the NYPD tried to control the vile, rude, and just plain nasty Leftists who manage to go wherever they want.
Watched a creepy leftist drag a tattered America flag across the rain soaked pavement.
Seems the Defund the Police lefties confidently ignore the police. Part 2 Flickr Slideshow focuses on the pro-abortion creeps.
Part 1 video – The Gift Of Life Rally gathered a block away from Foley Square because of SPIDERMAN was filming. Found the Pro Life Rally and very NOISY pro abortion LGBTQ lefties as Students from the St. Louis de Montfort Academy joined the walk.
Part 2 video – In a steady rain, the LGBTQ PRO Abortion creeps protested loudly the Gift Of Life Rally. The NYPD tried to control these rude pro abortionists, whose favorite chant was, “Stop Church Pedophilia’. At 1:40, in the background, a creepy leftist can be seen dragging a tattered America flag through the rain soaked pavement.
Students from the St. Louis de Montfort Academy ( in Penn) joined the walk. But first they stood in the rain and played hymns and patriotic music while the nasty LGBTQ brigade banged on lots metal … if it’s metal HIT IT!
This “DEFUND the Police” creep yelled YELLED to SHUT the F**k UP! at the school kids.
Final video of Academy students and protestors (video is posted at Flickr because you tube goes insane over music.)
[Where indicated pictures and videos property of Pamela Hall-VSB]
Followed by a NOISE ACTION ALERT from the anti-Trumpers
Video 1- the WHISTLES never stopped. Part 1 of 2 . Outside NYC Courthouse It was insane.With more media than protestors, the anti-Trumpers (who fear free speech) whistled ad nauseum. An assortment of both sides (pro and anti-Trump) co-mingled …. on the PRO-Trump side only and the press – so much press.
Flickr slide show (Part 3) More media than protestors. An assortment of both sides (pro and anti-Trump) co-mingling … and the press – which ridiculously outnumbered the participants gathered for the rally/protest.
. Video, Part 2 of 2. It was insane.The anti-Trumpers (who fear free speech) whistled ad nauseum as the police placed both sides on opposite sides of a Great Divide– And across from the courthouse, so much press waiting to catch a glimpse of MTG and President Trump. Heard a black anti-Trumper loving the indictment mania AND THE WHISTLES – on and on – from the anti-free speech, anti-Trumpers.
Flickr slide show (Part 1 of 3) is a look at the Pro-Trump Rally signs and people.
A look at the lefty a**hats. [The MORAN sign I thought was a typo -nope]

.Re Juliet Germanotta and the “Trump LIES All The Time”Banner escapade.
There was a lot of confusion as to who she is, and why she was going after the Rise and Resist anti-Trump banner. So much that was printed about Juliet’s identity was way off.
As for the sticker on her phone, Juliet says she likes the occult. OK. whatever. Juliet has a complicated history (that I have chronicled over the years) but what is pertinent to this event is that Juliet Germanotta has been aligned with the RIGHT (Trump) for the few years that I have followed her. She is NOT from the Left.
Unfortunately, the newbies on the Right think everyone they don’t know is a paid protestor from the Left. Not even close.
The two Rise and Resist leaders that were arguing with Juliet, Lisa Fithian and Laurie Arbeiter, are not cohorts of Juliet’s. THEY are hard core leftist leaders. Lisa Fithian, an anarchist trainer/ streetwise radical makes a living creating unrest and riots.
The anti-Trumpers tried to place their Trump Lies All the Time banner in the front of the court house.
. If you listen to the video, Juliet was EVICTING the leftist banner from the RIGHT (Trump) side. Listen to Juliet—-she says it more than once—-you are on the WRONG side.
Video from [https://twitter.com/niceblackdude]
By the time I got there the anti-Trumpers were back on the LEFT (anti-Trump) side where they belonged. Unfortunately, Juliet was mislabeled and mis-characterized by the newbies from her own side.
UPDATE: And now, as President Trump returned for another deposition, he made the claim – again- that Tish James is a RACIST.
Former President Donald Trump repeated his claim that Albany’s top prosecutor is “racist” — and that her lawsuit against him is “ridiculous” — before being deposed in connection with a $250 million civil case Thursday morning
He is correct:Tish James IS a racist. As she revealed in Jan 2017, proudly, her prejudice against those white males who are TOO MALE , TOO PALE and TOO STALE. Tish James has led many anti-Trump protests exposing the pact made with NYC’s hard core leftist politicians and union shills. Just the type of Attorney General George Soros wants to destroy our cities.

March 4, 2023. Andrew Heiskell Library For the Blind-NYC
Another inappropriate Drag Queen Story Hour at 11 AM was protested by the Guardians of Divinity who continue to oppose this misuse of public funds.
Councilman Erik Bottcher and State Sen, Brad Holyman (both gay activists) were on-site, defending these Story Hours as harmless, while accusing the protesters of being “Faces of HATE”.
The Antifa aggressors along with the Rise and Resist leftists assembled claim to protecting the children from the” Save The Children” protestors. But, as usual, they are the aggressors, physically assaulting the Guardians.
The Guardians continue to ask, “WHY is a grown man dressed as a woman, reading LGBTQ books c to CHILDREN?”
The high dudgeon exhibited by the leftists begs the question, “Would Christians be allowed to read their books with the same support from the city …. like the Drag Queens?”
FLICKR Slide Shows – Part 1 . Guardians of Divinity gathered to Save The Children and to Let Kids Be Kids. The Councilman slandered them as Faces Of Hate: even though their signs are not filled with hate, but concern for the children.
Part 2 Around 10:30 am. Rise and resist/ antifa thugs blocked the sidewalks and assaulted a Guardian who had arrived early to protest. The cops were in a van so they saw the assault and stopped the Antifas as soon as it started. ( no arrests) and of course the lefties still hung around like they owned the street.
Part 3 The Rise and Resist Lefties and their Antifa aggressors gathered mostly in front of the library, but always spill across the street; keeping the NYPD busy attempting to keep them under control.Joining them was the bared chested Crackhead Barney(dressed in religious garb as she had come from the early morning PRO Abortion rally) And Councilman Bottcher and State Sen Holyman, continued the lie that the protestors were “Faces of HATE”.
Part 4 So many police on the street and NYPD on scooters. The only issues requiring the police were recreated by the Antifas, and were handled quickly by the police. But, Councilman Bottcher must have needed the photo-op, cause the amount of police made no sense. Mayor Adams could use the NYPD presence better to curb the growing street crime around the city. Also, working the police as usual, was reporter Talia, who pressures the police with her demands and works to have any press she doesn’t approve of, shut down. Always busy walking back and forth, like a pit boss. AND, of course, Councilman Bottcher can be observed watching and talking to his friendly media about his “Faces of Hate”
.Four short Videos- Part 1 – Drag Queen Story Hour returned to the Andrew Heiskell Library for the Blind. In this clip,the Rise and Resit/ Antifa’s blocked the sidewalks and assaulted a Guardian who had arrived early. I saw the assault but camera wasn’t on. The police were sitting in a van at the corner, so as soon as the antifas struck, the cops put an end to the confrontation (though the lefties continued to block the sidewalk)
Part 2 The Guardians gathered to Save The Children and to Let Kids Be Kids, escorted by the NYPD … to keep the Antifas from assaulting them. Unfortunately, the Councilman continues to slander them as Faces Of Hate. But, their signs are not filled with hate. It is concern for the children.
Part 3 – The Guardians of Divinity gathered across from the Andrew Heiskell Library .Their signs were not filled with hate. TTheir signs: “Save The Children” and “Let Kids Be Kids”. and ”Stop Confusing the Kids” The Councilman continues to mislabel them as Faces Of Hate when their signs are not filled with hate. It is concern for the children.
.Part 4 – Stop Drag Queen Story Hour because it is inappropriate for children. That was why they chanted ” Shut It Down” . Though accused of being “Faces of Hate” by the local Councilman, their signs show otherwise. They say it is about concern for the children.
And coming up next is a NYC supported 4 Part MARATHON of Drag Queens reading to children . On Sunday, March 19th- From 11 am to 3 pm. Supported not only by NY’s local politicians but even (shamefully) Letitia James, NY Attorney General (taking a break from harassing President Trump)
Eve though Drag queen story hours for kids have been held at public libraries across the city since 2017, the events have recently drawn backlash and violent protests. The outrage in this NY Post article is encouraging:
New York Attorney General Letitia James is set to host a “Drag Story Hour” for children in Manhattan this weekend — and the event is sparking outrage over the use of taxpayer money for the already controversial event.
James and a string of fellow elected Democratic city and state leaders plan to attend Sunday’s event in the West Village where “families with children” are invited to watch drag performers read books over a four-hour stretch.
The AG’s March 19 event is co-sponsored by Drag Story Hour NYC — a nonprofit that has been showered in taxpayers funds, which has enabled them to send drag performers into public schools and libraries to interact with children as young as 3.
“My office is proud to host a Drag Story Hour read-a-thon,” James wrote on Instagram as she promoted the event. “We’re inviting families to join us at the @lgbtcenternyc with @dragstoryhour, drag storytellers, community leaders, and elected officials.”
News of the event sparked immediate backlash on Twitter, with some claiming New Yorkers’ tax dollars were “hard at work grooming kids.”
Why?? Why???? What is the purpose of government funded drag queens for children? To teach tolerance? BS,” Matt Antar, the New York Young Republican Club’s finance chairman, tweeted.
“Drag is a profession, not a “type of person.” A profession where adult men do exaggerated female impersonations often scantily clad with sexual themes… This is not the way.”
Conservative influencer Ashley St. Clair also chimed in, tweeting: “The “family-friendly” event will take place at the ‘Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual & Transgender Community Center.’ Your tax dollars are hard at work grooming kids!”
Steve Cortes, a former spokesman for President Trump’s campaign, added: “This kind of explicit targeting of children is just evil.”
“Grownups want to dress in drag? More power to them. But what is this fascination with wanting people to bring their kids to your drag show?” TV personality Judge Alex Ferrer tweeted.
The Plandemic is OVER.
But, no one seems to have told SAG/AFTRA.
SO, protesting membership demanded UNION Leadership
be held accountable for discrimination against membership!
5: 30 pm. Feb 26. Outside the SVA Theatre in NYC an eager audience was queuing to FIRST be checked for vax cards and then agree to arbitrary masking, otherwise: NO ENTRY for the Awards Screening.
Soon the protestors gathered, SAG members and friends, with cries of Shame on Sag filling the air. Actors forced to pay dues to a union that denies them employment gathered peacefully. Even so, someone called out a ridiculous amount of police – who left soon after – since this was definitely a peaceful protest.
The hypocrites running SAG cover for an elite core of union members who avoid the clot-shot, yet still work! Membership for the average union member includes pay your dues, BUT they must COMPLY to vax or NOT work. (some are more equal than others)
SAG has failed as a union. At the expense of the actors who must PAY their DUES but can NOT work because of arbitrary, debunked rules.
SAG/AFTRA continues to segregate membership. To gain entry for the screening, everyone had to go the the back of a line, wait to show their vax cards and then proceed to the the SAG Rep up front who was handing out MASKS.
Show your vax card and mask up or go home
But, the actual Awards show was in LA. In a packed ballroom of NO MASKING celebs. One can imagine as well the clot shot secretly injected into a slew of oranges … rather than the arms of these ELITE SAG members. (a well kept secret?)
The protestors were loud. Passionate. Our Bodies. Our Choice should NOT be used to segregate us. We pay our dues. LET US WORK !
Flickr – Part 1 – END this Plandemic Discrimination NOW. There was an unnecessary amount of police who came to check out the protest… and left … because this was a peaceful protest. (although Theatre Security complained about the chalk on the sidewalk ’cause they would have to hose it down.)
Flickr- Part 2. The protestors demanded an end to forced masking while the celeb-elites in L.A. gathered mask-free! Signs and chants filled the air as Do not Comply, End Segregation, End Discrimination challenged the eager lemmings entering the theatre under these arbitrary rules.
Part 1 Video [3:07] “Shame on You” followed by impassioned speakers who represent ACTORS who want to work! Another said re the mandated vax: “We should have a vote, not a mandate.” And another speaker challenged the union with “You’ve sold your soul to the Devil.” Followed by more chants: “END discrimination in the union”
Part 2 Video [1:48] Police showed up but didn’t stay long. The protestors were loud but peaceful. But, that didn’t keep the SVA Theatre Security from being upset by the chalk messages that stated clearly WHY they were protesting. All this while the audience was sent to the back of a line to get vax approved and masked before they could enter.
Part 3 Video [1:40] Chants of segregation and a great sign: S.egregation A.buse G.enocide as well as more en point chalk messages. “Our Dues pay YOUR salary”. The protestors were not shy. They spoke directly to the lemmings attending the Awards Screening. And some of the audience were equally direct (one older fellow angrily entered the theatre with a two-handed flip-off to the protestors)
Part 4 Video [00:47] Everyone who attended the screening had to go to the back of a line, to show their vax cards, and then proceed to the SAG/AFTRA Rep handing out the masks. Meanwhile, the celebs in L.A. were MASK FREE.
Part 5 Video [1:45] Masks. So many masks. So many sheeple happily masking up to attend the awards screening. While the celebs in L.A. are mask-free.
“Shame on You, SAG”.
Next day, SAG/AFTRA President Fran Drescher made a statement following the demonstrations on both coasts. She called for an end to the mandates, so the actors can work. “When equal citizens stop being equal, when cards must be presented to identify whether you are included or excluded, we stand at the tipping point of an America I no longer recognize.”
She urged Hollywood to end its vaccine mandates in her opening remarks at the 2023 Screen Actors Guild Awards ceremony on Sunday (Feb. 26), calling for everyone to use their financial influence to “make governors act” on the issue.
“As the nation declares an end to the COVID emergency this May, I hope we will see everyone return to work in equal opportunity!”
Feb 15, 2023. The Guardians of Divinity gathered peacefully protest another Drag Queen Story hour promoted as usually as SAFE for Children.
Today they were outside a NY Public Library on East 79th St. The upper east side of Manhattan aka Yorkville.
The NYPD predictably spends all their time dealing with the Antifa radicals who claim to be are there as ‘protection’ for the children.
Protecting the children from those “scary”Guardians of Divinity by the very scary Antifa radicals.
The rest of the Drag supporters are the colorful Rise and Resist Leftists … who have no respect for the First Amendment (or the police)either…
They all have one purpose: to shut down any opposition, and to do this they go where they want and do what they want.
Today, outside the library there were an unusual amount of strollers.Perhaps it’s the UES nannys looking to keep the kids busy (no matter what the event).
Flickr Slide Show- The hardcore lefties consistently wear masks- not as a leftover from the “plandemic “. Their directives claim that UMBRELLAS and MASKS are needed to PROTECT their identities from the evil police. And the dangerous Right Wing Racists.
One. Big. Obnoxious. GAME.
Flickr Slide show – Of Both sides outside the Library
Videos Part 1- The door to the library didn’t open til 11 am, so the children . The strollers, the nannies. The antifa/rise resisters. All hovered outside. It was the few moments of filming for me before they decided to surround me ( yawn). Once the doors opened, the “you don’t belong here” game began
Part 2. The police were in a much better mood on the UES than the officers in Queens and the 20th street. It was encouraging the calm demeanor they maintained while controlling the Antifa thugs- they still surrounded me- blocking my camera as best they could,with their RAINBOW umbrellas, but today there were limits to how far they could push me. Thank you, Yorkville NYPD.
Part 3 – Activist Jamie Bauer insisted she could NOT understand WHY this group has an issue with the Story Hours. She was seeking a dialogue so she could understand …. but she couldn’t get an answer. (poor dear)
Part 4 – The Guardians of Divinity, when they first gathered were in front of library … as were the Rise Resisters … but the police were not comfortable with this arrangement. All the barricades were late arriving. So, the antifa thugs were roaming and shoving and physically threatening the Guardians. Annoyed, understandably, the Guardians were placed in a barricaded area, away from the library entrance.
The resistance by concerned citizens like the Guardians of Divinity to grooming children through inappropriate books, classroom indoctrination and the proliferation of adult Drag Queen Story Hours performing to young children continues and is growing. Parents are no longer silent. The resistance will never be silent.
Stop Grooming the Kids. Let Kids be Kids. Stop Killing Their Innocence. They are definitely making an impression.
Even though NYC is run by progs and the soc/commie machine they are NOT comfortable …. they HATE that the opposition continues.
Never Give In!

On Dec 29, the Leftist “Defenders of Drag Queens” behaved badly, ripping signs, pepper-spraying the non-violent Guardians of Divinity while assaulting their cameras with horns and very shrill voices . It was business as usual.
The Guardians of Divinity, protested another Drag Queen Story Hour in Jackson Heights, Queens, where they were challenged by an aggressive band of leftists and antifa. ( organized by UARFnyc : United Against Racism and Fascism)
The Leftist scum crowded the street and sidewalks, emboldened by the fact that Jackson Heights is known as a gay enclave, they did as they pleased.
“In the 1920s, LGBT actors working in the 42nd Street theater scene decided to make their homes in Jackson Heights due to the lack of affordability of Manhattan neighborhoods and the easy accessibility of the 7 train. That was the beginning of what is now the second largest gay community in New York City.” [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jackson_Heights,_Queens]
Th Leftists, “DEFENDERS of Drag Queens”, created confrontations by ripping signs, pepper-spraying the non-violent Guardians and assaulting their photographers by blocking them, blasting them with horns while their shrieks and drums filled the air.
A view of the protesting Leftists…written by the Left at UNICORN RIOT.
Their report is an over the top characterization of these “Defenders of Drag Queens.” (Community Defenders vs “Faces of Hate”)
But, ignores the role the instigators play (like the instigator in green) who fed her bogus version of an exchange with a conservative reporter to the very willing lefty Unicorn Press. Her modus operandi is to create chaos, claiming victim hood for the always eager reporters. (see video)
.Along with twitter reporter “Talia Jane”, wiki has predictably published the “Faces of Hate” labels and fictitious stories as fact. Never reports that the DQSHs encourage a new breed of children who look at sex and gender as FLUID. Also, this bloody street-theatre piece was brought to the children as they passed by. Anything is OKAY, even the occasionally naked Crackhead Barney, except protecting the children from this unnecessary indoctrination,.
Ignoring the rights of PARENTS. People. Families to object to Drag Queen indoctrination. Dismissing their opposition as : HATEFUL. Bagel Karen with her two young children passed by the obscene Crackhead Barney with her friend Daniel Christmann. She seemed to have no issue with this relentless sexualization of children. (see video)
..As for the rest of the videos from Dec 29 – these cultural Marxists in Queens are rude, crude and very gay.
Perhaps accounting for the clownish behavior of these ‘defenders’, who also did not hesitate to accost the peaceful protestors, forcing the NYPD to focus mostly on the chaotic ‘defenders of drags‘.
Videos: Part 1-[:06] relentless (obnoxious) screaming (and drums) from the leftist crowd as police attempt to clear stragglers out of the street and back behind the barricades. Councilwoman Cruz is seen watching the action from the lefty pen. NYPD hasn’t closed the street to traffic ( yet) so cars are being allowed to pass thru slowly, as a Drag Queen Story Hour protestors call out the lefties as ‘disgusting pedophiles’. Children are watching from the upper level of the library as both sides yell at each other. [end 1:51]
Part 2 –[0:11] Drag Story Hour protestors are holding signs and chanting “Hey Hey Ho Ho , pedophiles have got to go” Another guy yells at the lefties, You are disgusting pedophiles, every one of you.”. Are lefty marches thru the Guardians protest with a snarky sign, “”This is the ass-hole meet up” . The streets are packed with the lefties. Ignoring the police as always while more lefties (dressed as Satan) cross in to the Guardians space. Blasting horns. Blocking cameras. yelling in the faces. This goes on for quite awhile til the police finally send the lefties back across the street. A lefty pink unicorn character danced in front of the lefties – for their amusement. Til finally every one was cleared from the street so a city bus could pass through. [3:05]
Part 3 –  The Guardians shouted towards the library, “Let Kids the Kids” while the lefties continued to leave their ‘pens’ to cross over . A Guardian held a sign that said, “Stop Confusing kids” . The Leftists made much about the Proud Boy flags that were seen on the Guardians protest area. They were there as protection, but never did anything more than stand around with their flags and signs. The noise level from the leftists continued to be very loud (surely making it difficult to concentrate for anyone inside the library) [1:08]
Part 4 – [0:04] I passed by former New York educator,Joy Newball, talking to a man who seemed to be with the “protectors” about WHY the Drag Hours and the books they are reading should be of concern.The street was full of officers at this point, but that didn’t stop the instigator woman-in-green from leading an assault on a Guardian photographer. ( and the NYPD now seemed to be no where in sight) “Where is the NYPD!” The lefties LOVE to make noise with colorful hand fans -while shouting thru face masks, It difficult to understand them. Just NOISE. Assemblywoman Cruz seemed to be co-ordinating the police as a familiar lefty, who always wears a The Resistance Company mask, marched in the street yelling, “Fuck you, Nazis” [1:43]
Part 5 – [0:06] No traffic . Street was now closed, jammed with police, protestors and photographers. With the lefties going where ever they pleased, someone ripped the “Stop Drag Queen Story Hour” and ran into the street. (the Guardian retrieved the pieces, taped it together) And AGAIN the instigator-in-green (1:06 n video) arrived to create more confrontations. ( composite exposed how many confrontations she created)
Placing many police in the center of the street … attempting to keep sides separated, I guess [1:40]
Part 6 – [0:04]The Neo-Nazi who marched in to the protest was a known press-hungry interloper, escorted by the obnoxious fraud, Jovi Val. They had no part in the Guardians protest, not invited, not wanted and were finally removed by the NYPD. But, of course, the press couldn’t get enough of them. (it was difficult to get a good view due to the GLUT of photographers) The Lefty reporters love to ignor ethe FACT that all acts of aggression came from the LEFT: the uncontrollable, pepper-spraying – fire-starting – LEFT. [1:24]
.The media loved Councilman Erik Bottcher’s lies (the current press meme from Dec 19) slandering the Guardians Of Divinity as Faces of Hate.
The councilman (press shot from Dec 19th) and his sycophant press ignored the honest concerns of the Guardians : “Save the Children and Let Kids be Kids.”
Instead, anyone protesting these Story Hours are labeled racists, bigots and homophobes aka Faces of Hate.
After 5 years of unopposed Story Hours around the country, these cultural Marxists, these social constructionists, are shocked by any opposition to what they “claim to be innocent” story books. (The books read are rarely if ever revealed.) But, “Bella Noche” was happy to share that he read this book outside the library- on the street- to the children. (this day he was not in drag- see his web site post below of Bella’s drag persona)
.FLICKR Part 2 of 2 shows the Guardians of Divinity and the Proud Boys (who joined them as security) peacefully holding signs while the NYPD tried to control the socialist/communist/fascisti ‘defenders”as they made the streets unpassable and assaulted the Guardians of Divinity.
.Flickr Part 1 of 2 Opposing their peaceful protest was the hateful soc/commie/ fascisti. They required constant attention as NYPD attempted to control them. The antifa scum claim to be about ‘love’ while displaying the opposite by ripping up signs, fouling the streets with fake blood – blocking cars and busses as children watch from inside the library.
“Harris Kornstein—stage name Lil Miss Hot Mess—who hosted some of the original readings in public libraries and wrote the children’s book The Hips on the Drag Queen Go Swish, Swish, Swish. Kornstein sits on the board of Drag Queen Story Hour, the nonprofit organization that was founded by Michelle Tea in 2015 to promote “family-friendly” drag performances and has since expanded to 40 local chapters that have organized hundreds of performances across the United States.
(Kornstein also published the manifesto for the movement, “Drag Pedagogy: The Playful Practice of Queer Imagination in Early Childhood,” with coauthor Harper Keenan, a female-to-male transgender queer theorist at the University of British Columbia.[ … ] the authors propose a new teaching method, “drag pedagogy,” as a way of stimulating the “queer imagination,” teaching kids “how to live queerly,” and “bringing queer ways of knowing and being into the education of young children.” )
The books selected in many Drag Queen Story Hour performances—Cinderelliot, If You’re a Drag Queen and You Know It, The Gender Wheel, Bye Bye, Binary, and They, She, He, Easy as ABC—promote this basic narrative. Though Drag Queen Story Hour events are often billed as “family-friendly,” …. DQSH is ‘family friendly’ in the sense of ‘family’ as an old-school queer code to identify and connect with other queers on the street.” …. the goal is not to reinforce the biological family but to facilitate the child’s transition into the ideological family.( ….) …. the queer pedagogist Hannah Dyer has written, queer pedagogy and, by extension, drag pedagogy seek to expose the very concept of “childhood innocence” as an oppressive hetero-patriarchal illusion.
The purpose is to subvert the system of hetero-normativity, which includes childhood innocence, and re-engineer childhood sexuality from the ground up. “
To Recap: The Guardians of Divinity protested another Drag Queen Story Hour in Jackson Heights (Queens) where they were accosted by an aggressive band of leftists, marxists, progs and antifa. * (Leeroy Press was there as they pepper sprayed two Guardians of Divinity as they were leaving)
The leftists agitators ripped signs, pepper-sprayed non-violent Guardians and stood amongst them blocking their cameras while using horns and very shrill voices to add to the chaos.
.The NYPD would occasionally corral the leftists and then lose control of them, again. The many difficulties the police dealt with were caused by the “Defenders of Drag Queens “. Eventually the police had to close the street to traffic (and the city busses).
A simple construct of Good vs Evil.
The soc/commie/progs – the politicians – the cultural marxists – are unwilling to admit that libraries and schools are inappropriate Drag Queen venues (mostly paid for with public funds). They call the shots. So will these protests ever make a difference? Can this relentless grooming of children be stopped? Is it too late?
January 28, 2023. Washington Sq. – Noon. SAVING Israeli Democracy
“Demonstrating for the establishment of a real democracy in Israel! Help us support the demonstrating masses in Israel, who call for human, civil and political rights for all, and maintaining the democratic institutions because democracy does not stop only at elections.” [From Face Book ]
Hosted by @UnxeptableD, protesting the re-election of Benjamin Netanyahu as Prime Minister. (he previously served more than 15 years as Israel’s P.M.)
Israeli democracy is in danger
The people of Israel ask Netanyahu to step down
(Because) they are the Voices of Hope
Flickr Slide show:
Their signs consistently complained that Netanyahu’s Far Right Government threatened peace and democracy in Israel.
Israel’s new government is the most right-wing government in the country’s history. In order to regain his position as prime minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, who was sworn into office Dec. 29, entered into a coalition with ultra-Orthodox religious parties and ultra-nationalist parties.
One issue at the forefront is the definition of who is Jewish.
“One possibility is that they will change educational programs in schools so that they will reflect very narrow definitions of Jewishness and Jewish identity.” Currently, anyone who is a child or a grandchild of a Jewish person – and their spouses – can immigrate to Israel, but some members of the new government want to change that.”
